The Strategic Leadership Council plans NBHAAD each year.
This observance is an opportunity to increase HIV education, testing, community involvement, and treatment among black communities.
The first National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD) was marked in 1999 as a grassroots-education effort to raise awareness about HIV and AIDS prevention, care, and treatment in communities of color.
The 2019 theme was Together for Love: Stop HIV Stigma. Re-visit this page to learn the 2020 theme.
We’ll add community and federal resources here early in 2020 as available to help you communicate about NBHAAD. An NBHAAD site is also updated each year by the Strategic Leadership Council that leads the annual observance.
